Review: Cheech & Chong in Columbus, Ohio

Cheech & Chong fan, Mike Clark, provided a review of the February 21st Light Up America show in Columbus, OH.

"My wife and I attended your recent Columbus, Ohio concert. I have been a long time fan from way way back. About ten years ago, I bought your greatest hits CD and turned my four children on to the Bloaters, Sister Mary and many of your other classic characters. I heard about your “reunion” tour when you appeared on Howard Stern’s show. From the interview it seemed like the plan was as much about having fun as it was about making some easy money. So with that mindset I went online, found theColumbus date and dropped a C note plus on a pair of decent. Good news – the money was well spent. I had a blast and my Mrs enjoyed the show.

Most importantly, thanks for setting a fair price for the tickets. I imagine you realize that you could have charged much more but you didn’t. That fact coupled with the fun/energy you guys displayed caused me to renew my Cheech & Chong fandom for life."

Bobby Capps Cheech & Chong Charity Auction has Begun

Last month, we reported that the legendary outlaw, Bobby Capps, was invited to hang out with Cheech, Tommy and Shelby Chong backstage in Sacramento.

The gang was gracious enough to autograph some really cool Cheech & Chong items to benefit The Placer County Animal Control in Auburn, California.

These items are now up for auction. It's a bargain and a collector's dream for all the items you get.

From the description...

This Cheech and Chong memorabilia is a collector's dream. We are auctioning off these four items to the highest bidder. 100% of the profits from the auction will go to The Placer County Animal Control in Auburn Calif.

They have 89 Cats and 70 Dogs whose lives are being held in the balance because of the economic disaster. As of Feb. 2, 2009, the State of Calif has gone broke. We know they will be funded soon but animals will be sacrificed if it takes too long. Many animals will have to be destroyed because of cutbacks in state funding. The bidding starts at $150.00 dollars US for four items as follows:

1) One of a kind Tie Dyed Light Up America T shirt Autographed by Cheech Marin & Tommy Chong & Shelby Chong. Only one in the world like it.

2) One copy of AKA Tommy Tommy documentary DVD of the famous incarceration of Tommy Chong autographed by Cheech & Chong & Shelby Chong. The plastic wrapper is included and is a transparent rolling paper. It was slid back in order to have autographs signed on the actual cardboard DVD holder. (For the person whom wants to try the paper and not lose the signatures.

3) One Copy of the book Cheech and Chong The Unauthorized Autobiography. It is autographed by Cheech & Chong and Shelby Chong. It is autographed a second time by Tommy Chong

Cheech & Chong Rock Radio City Music Hall

Tonight, Cheech & Chong had the biggest show of their Light Up tour so far. Radio City Music Hall in New York City was completely sold out. People were lined up around the block waiting to get in.

Cheech and Tommy briefly signed autographs as they were entering Radio City and left promptly afterward (note: It was really cold out!).

As promised, there were plenty of celebs on-hand. Kim Catrell from Sex in the City was up front, Jessie from Charlotte (ok, not really a celeb, but someone really amazing) was sitting next to me and someone mentioned seeing one of the actors from the Sopranos (didn't hear which).

Before the show started, I saw Tommy Chong's daughter, Rae Dawn, entering the venue. Cheech also mentioned that his daughter (I think he said Jasmine) was there. This was her first time seeing Cheech & Chong perform live.

The Cheech & Chong shows are getting better and better as the tour progresses. They do the same sketches and songs at each show, but they are very improv-d. Cheech and Tommy throw in these funny one-liners which makes the other struggle not to laugh.

The audience was great. They were all big fans of Cheech and Chong. There were huge lines to purchase merchandise. Plus, the smell of weed filled the air.

We highly recommend seeing every show you possibly can. It'll be one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
